Application for a Social Security Card

OMB 0960-0066

OMB 0960-0066

SSA collects information on the SS-5 (used in the United States) and SS-5-FS (used outside the United States) to issue original or replacement Social Security cards. SSA also enters the application data into the Social Security Number Application Process (SSNAP) when card via telephone or in person. In addition, hospitals collect the same information on SSA's behalf for newborn children through the Enumeration-at-Birth process. In this process, parents of newborns provide hospital birth registration clerks with information required to register these newborns. Hospitals send this information to State Bureaus of Vital Statistics (BVS), and they send the information to SSA's National Computer Center. SSA then uploads the data to the SSA mainframe along with all other enumeration data, and we assign the newborn a Social Security number (SSN) and issue a Social Security card. Respondents can also use these modalities to request a change in their SSN records. Additionally, the iSSNRC application will collect information similar to the paper SS-5 for no-change replacement SSN cards for adult U.S. citizens. A new iSSNRC modality included in the current clearance will allow certain applicants for an SSN replacement card to apply by completing an internet application and submitting the required evidence online rather than completing a paper Form SS-5, Application for a Social Security Card. The respondents for this collection are applicants for original and replacement Social Security cards, or individuals who wish to change information in their SSN records, who use any of the modalities described above. We are submitting a COVID-related Change Request to include new pre-screening questions for Express Service Appointments in our field offices. We will only use these pre-screening questions and allow for Express Service Appointments in field offices for prioritized requests for SSNs only on an as needed basis.
